Dancing with the Stars is one of the top shows on television. Judging by Google Alerts and other trend spotters, as well as BlogTalkRadio’s archive it’s safe to say DWTS is very popular online as well.

This afternoon we continue to bring interviews with past and present Dancing with the Stars contestants when last season’s darling, Cloris Leachman drops by to chit chat with Betty Jo Tucker. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Cloris’ before she joined DWTS, she’s also an Emmy and Academy Award winning actress who just completed her autobiography, Cloris. The fun starts at 4:00 p.m. EDT, and with Cloris Leachman, you never know what’s going to happen!

In addition to today’s visit with Cloris Leachman, check out some of our other interviews with Dancing With the Stars contestants:

  • Lisa Rinna chatted with fitness guru Pete Williams to talk about her new exercise video, her appearance in Playboy and yes, Dancing with the Stars.
  • Injuries kept Nancy O’Dell from Dancing with the Stars, but they didn’t prevent her from visiting with World Talk Live‘s Brett Cohen.
  • Stardish Radio recently welcomed Tony Dovolani and Chelsie Hightower.
  • Volleyball star and DWTS contestant Misty May Treansor also visited with World Talk Live.

It’s Another All-Star Edition of ‘The Mix’

Yes, we know, virtually every edition of The Daily Mix is studded with stars (or at least up-and-coming stars) (or at least wannabe stars).

So why bill this particular edition as “all-star”?

The answer is simple.

So as soon as you figure it out, leave it in the comments below so the rest of us know.

-Who it is that Zachary Sang tells Miley Cyrus‘ BFF Mandy Jiroux he wishes he “had an afro like.”

Joey Lawrence: I’m an Actor — Not a Celebrity!

Don’t try making a connection with Joey Lawrence in cyberspace.

Because the Blossom hottie wants nothing to do with social media.

“I’m a guy who keeps my private life very private. So I don’t do this ‘celebrity’ stuff… I’m old-school that way,” Joey, who stars opposite Melissa Joan Hart in the new ABC Family flick My Fake Fiancé, debuting Sunday, tells Mr. Media host Bob Andelman.

CAPTIONS: "You brought it on yourself," Joey (above) cautions fellow celebs who attract unwanted TMZ attention.

"You brought it on yourself," Joey (above) cautions fellow celebs who attract unwanted TMZ attention.

“The idols I grew up watching – Clint Eastwood, Clark Gable, Harrison Ford – these are guys that keep their private life private… And that’s what I’m about.

“I’m not a big fan of this Twitter and MySpace and all this stuff, where these celebrities constantly feel they need to be a celebrity – which is not what we are. If you’re an actor, you’re not really a celebrity.

“The line gets blurred between these reality stars and the actual movie stars – these young people who feel they need to compete with the reality stars and turn their private life into a film.

“And that’s when you get into a big problem, because everybody knows your every move… And then when TMZ is following you everywhere and you’re covering yourself up, stumbling out of a club, it’s like, Get away from me! Don’t bother me!”
